A glass cutter was a tool used by some rogues to by-pass locked windows.[1]


Glass cutters were a viable option for thieves wishing to ignore the time-consuming task of getting through a locked window.[1]

A diamond-tipped cutting edge attached to an adjustable arm was attached to a suction cup, allowing for circular cuts of various sizes to be made upon a window pane. After making the cut a simple tap would remove the section of window while the suction cup kept the glass from shattering and making a loud noise.[1]


A typical glass cutter could be purchased for 2 gold.[1]
